Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Family therapy- This therapy helps make changes in the family. It improves communication skills and family interactions. Having a child with ODD can be very hard for parents. It can also cause problems for siblings. Parents and siblings need support and understanding.

Arts based therapy– Basically, the benefits of art therapy can be quite broad. It can improve lives by helping people improve their mental, emotional, and even physical states.

Psychotherapy–  psychotherapists who work with children to consider the possibility that ODD is temperament-based low-frustration-tolerance behavior that well-meaning but uninformed parents have inadvertently mismanaged. I believe that psychotherapists who add this approach to their work with oppositional children will increase their effectiveness and be better prepared to manage their own personal reactions to this most difficult yet worthwhile endeavor. A child learns to better solve problems and communicate. He or she also learns how to control impulses and anger.

Psychiatry(optional)- Provides psychotherapy and medicine
